11:24 pm
11:25 pm
11:26 pm
lucky for the terps, the final score is all that matters because today's season opener against william and mary was nothing to bragabout. they were scoreless after three- quarters and committed turnovers.
11:27 pm
the attendance was just 31,321, the smallest crowd for a terps opener since 1997. to byrd stadium we go where the true freshman perry hill is making his first start. it did not go well. his pass picked off. one of three interceptions. the freshman threw on the day but things would get better in the fourth. justice picket takes it in for the touchdown. they grab a lead with two minutes to go. jeremiah johnson forces the fumble. hartsfield with the recovery. let's just say a win is a win. the terps will take it as they escape with a 7-6 victory. >> did some things to try to settle perry down and just came out in the second half, defense played very, very good. found a way to win. you know what? maybe this is better for us than getting a win like this than blowing somebody out. navy taking the field in
11:28 pm
dublin, ireland, why notre dame was feeling right at home. watch him cut back and he is gone. 56 yards for the touchdown giving the irish a 10-0 lead and they would never look back. second quarter, trey miller feels the pressure. that's a live day and he takes it the other way 77 yards. that made it 27-0. the irish hammered navy 50-10. in charlottesville, looking good in the opener. kevin park, a touchdown. that gave them a 7-0 lead. it would get better. look at this great effort by darius jenkins, a slick move to break free. he slips the tackle. 51 yards later he's in the end zone. 43-19. 11th ranked west virginia scored early and often against marshal. first quarter, smith rolls out, throws it up. bailey, look at this terrific
11:29 pm
catch in the end zone. the first of 8 t.d.'s of the day for the mountaineers. they outscored marshal. penn state playing their first game since penalties levied against the program. facing ohio with three minutes to go, bobcats get this touchdown. tyler to foster. that was the game winner. ohio beats penn state 24-14. matt barkley and third ranked southern cal hosting hawaii. first play from scrimmage. lee makes a move and see you. 75 yard touchdown. that was the beginning of a route. trojans win big 41-10. once the nationals shut down stephen strasburg, it will shift to the starting rotation and how well, they can carry the load without their ace. hopefully zimmerman will return to form. in his first three starts 0 and 3 with an era near 8. today
11:30 pm
against the cardinals he got roughed up again. we start in the 6th. zimmerman with a base hit. that scores jason weather. [ jason wert. that gives the nats a 9-8 lead. david frees delivers the base hit. that scores allen craig with the go ahead run. cards beat the nats 12-9 and zimmerman allows 8 earned runs in just 3 and two-thirds. orioles and yankees, the base is loaded, two outs. hardy bobbles it. can't recover. that allows the go ahead run to score. that was the difference in the game. yankees win 4-3. they're at three games. think about this. if the orioles had won they would be one game out of first place on september 1st. last holiday weekend of the summer, this is important. we've got to get this in.
11:31 pm
it doesn't look good. yeah. unfortunately our storm and rain chances increase tomorrow through labor day. so definitely you need your umbrellas the next couple of days here. temperatures for your subpoenaed, mid-80s -- sunday, mid-80s. rain and storms for the nats game tomorrow. labor day high of 83 with a better chance, orms and showers are likely. we're dealing with the remnants of isaac the next couple of days here. tuesday, wednesday, we go back up into the upper 80s. >> just order the ribs and chicken and corn and all that stuff. >> you're fine, right? >> yeah, sure. thanks a lot. we'll see you back here tomorrow at 11:00. bye.
